Alectra helps local company save $80,000 annually as a result of retrofit conservation initiative

Alectra Utilities’ Conservation and Demand Management (CDM) team recently worked with local engineering company, Litens Automotive Partnership, to complete a lighting retrofit of their building’s interior and exterior lighting systems.

The lighting upgrade, offered through the Save on Energy Retrofit Program, will result in an annual energy savings of 602,305 kilowatt hours (kWh), the equivalent of powering over 800 homes for one month – or an estimated annual financial savings of $83,118 for the company.

Alectra’s CDM team identified opportunities for energy efficiencies throughout the interior of the building where high wattage lighting was consuming excessive amounts of electricity to light a large space. Existing incandescent, high intensity discharge lamps (HIDs), compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and fluorescent tube lighting were replaced throughout the facility with LED lighting.
